Today is 7/18 and in all seven seas, I'm mobydickulous.

Source: This is based on a lyric from the 2 Skinnee J's song, (718):

Come check us out, we're two stereo bean poles.
You say that you don't know, but your Pinocchio nose grows.
We're wanton juxtaposers, any style that you like,
Goes right into the mix, when we style on the Mic.
We're analytical, ain't that political,
And Yo we step up to the mic subject to ridicule.
We're meticulous, ain't that ridiculous?
We're in all seven seas, we're mobydickulous!

Explanation: Today is July 18th (7/18), which also happens to be the area code for Brooklyn, New York. (718) was my favorite 2 Skinnee J's song about the band members moving to Brooklyn. In concerts, they always performed it last, which is good, because I was usually too exhausted to go on afterward.

Special Blog Bonus: I don't have video of (718), but then again, if you don't experience it, it's just not the same. Here's Loud Neighbors, one of the first songs they performed at the 7/18/03 farewell concert at B.B. King's in Manhattan. And yes, I was there.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I feel obligated to say that the language in these video clips is not 100% wholesome. Neither is life. Suck it up and enjoy some fine entertainment.

You know what? We're going to party like it's 7/18! Here's The Good, the Bad, and the Skinnee from another concert:

Keep this party moving! Here's Change the World:

And finally, here I am with my favorite Bosnian and my favorite Irish/German guy, posing with A.J. Stumpy Johnson, the band's owner, manager, and spiritual advisor. Truly, we are all champions. (And we have the medals to prove it!)

Now go out there and have a mobydickulous day! And bounce just a little bit in honor of the Skinnees - they deserve the love.
